God's mission is at work in your life. Will you share your story with the rest of the church?
You are invited to make a two-minute video for the Mission Moments website and talk about how God is working where you are. This is the latest—and most interactive—element in the Anglican Church of Canada's promotion of the Marks of Mission, five priorities used throughout the worldwide Anglican Communion.
By Bishop Michael Hawkins, Diocese of Saskatchewan
The story of Jesus’ temptation, like that of His passion and death, is an account of power unexercised.
In the Garden of Eden, at the tower of Babel, in Jesus’ temptation and passion, the issue is power. For the opposite of love is power. Love gives and power takes.
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), has teamed up with the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) to construct a model village for 200 families in Haiti. PWRDF is the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Canada.
As we enter into the season of Lent PWRDF invites you to reflect on food – its production and consumption – and how it connects us to our families, communities, global partners and God’s creation.
Each week through the seven weeks of Lent the PWRDF will post excerpts from “Fast for Change – 7 Days to Tend the Earth” a booklet containing scripture passages, reflections, and ideas for action and change for each of you to consider.

In most parts of Canada, January isn't the greatest time to hang out by open water. It's cold, it's windy, and if you stand still too long, your face will freeze.
Yet it's worth the discomfort if you're there for divine purposes. Such was the case for some Indigenous Anglicans who this year picked up the Eastern Orthodox tradition of the Great Blessing of Water. The outdoor event happens on or close to Jan. 19, the feast of Christ's baptism known as "Theophany."
The adaptation was led by National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald, who held two chilly services: one in Kingfisher Lake, Ont., and one in Toronto.
Twelve years ago the school expanded its programme beyond theological studies to include secondary education. There was a shortage of schools and an increasing need for education among Ugandan children.
Many challenges faced the children, but among the most difficult were inadequate facilities.
